On this the aetivity of man is superimposed historically from land, bases in Shetland and elsewhere. External influences of immigration, trade, politics, economic and social factors have been prominent in development in the region. From the dominance of any influence a series of phases, on which chapters have been based, can be distinguished. The first came with cultural replacement during Scandinavian immigration in the ninth and tenth centuries, Following this commercialism developed through Henseatic merchants When they wore banished, the social factor of immigrant. Scottish landmaster control was important in, expanding the haf fishery.
